Photos of some deceased members on memory table at the clubhouse.

71 golfers comprising 16 teams teed off in ideal weather conditions on Saturday afternoon in the first of what is hoped to become an annual golf tournament in memory of our golfers who have passed away. Many family members of deceased golfers turned out for the event and enjoyed some memories of their loved ones as well as some music.

The youngest golfer taking part in the event was 11 year old Jackson Boland the great nephew of deceased member Ivan Paul. Ivan loved golf and playing Grande Meadows. Jackson is following in his great uncle’s footsteps as he is a Junior Golf member at Clovelly Golf Club in St. John’s and has already won some golf awards. Jackson along with his grandmother, Brenda Inkpen, Ivan’s niece made a $300 donation in Ivan’s memory to Grande Meadows Junior Golf.

L to R: Cathy Inkpen, Beverly Inkpen, Brenda Inkpen, Jackson Boland present the donation to Barry Stacey on behalf of Grande Meadows.

Below are links to 3 files related to our deceased members. The first link is to a little article of memories of our deceased members written by Barry Stacey while the other 2 links are to lists of our deceased members as well as deceased golfers who had played in the Grande Meadows Invitational Golf Tournament over the past 25 years. There may be some omissions from the list so if you are aware of a deceased person who we have missed could you email the name along to Barry Stacey at We will update the lists. Thank you.

Team #11 and Team #3 tied for 1st place with scores of 30 but Team #11 consisting of Jordan Baird, Gus Keating, Trevor Keating, James Mitchell and Perry Stone won out by countback over Team #3 made up of deceased member Don MacBeath’s family including Don’s wife, Mary McCarthy, son Alex as well as in-laws Jeannette Lundrigan, Vic Lundrigan and Genny McCarthy.

On course prizes of Closest-to-the-pin was won by Frank Haskell on Hole #3 and Al Lewis on Hole #5. The ticket draw for the golf bag was won by Noel Doyle.

Kudos must go out to Tournament Chairperson Eric Ayers who worked so hard to get this tournament off the ground and in the end was felled by Covid the day before the event. Thank you very much Eric and we look for all your hard work. As well thank you to the other members of the tournament committee for their dedication and hard work.

Below are the scores for all teams participating along with handicaps. Teams #1 and #4 didn’t turn in a card but we found out that team #4 was -2. We used Don MacBeath’s scoring method : Handicap: take 3 highest holes – take number of strokes over par – mulitiply by 3 to give handicap. As you can see there were only 3 bogies for the day along with 1 eagle by Team #4 on Hole #8.
